Tribes Coming to In-Browser Play

According to Shacknews, Tribes (remember that, way back in the day?) has been Ported to Browsers.

A web-based version of Dynamix's classic team-based multiplayer shooter Starsiege: Tribes is soon coming to browser gaming portal InstantAction.

I've actually been playing Quake Live (quake 3 in a browser) and a bit of Battlefield Heroes (cartoony battlefield 1942 in a browser) lately and have to say it's pretty good. Even though the browser is just shelling out to an executable, it feels more convenient than shutting things down, finding the CD, running the game, etc. I'll be interested to see how well Tribes has held up after all these years.
